Book Synopsis: The Leadership Secrets of Jesus
Here’s a 3 minute synopsis of Mike Murdock’s book entitled, “The Leadership Secrets of Jesus.”
- Successful people are simply problem solvers
- Your integrity will always be remembered longer than your product.
- You will never possess what you are unwilling to pursue.
- A tired mind rarely makes good decisions.
- Work time is giving. Rest time is receiving.
- A plan is a written list of arranged actions necessary to achieve your desired goal.
- Sometimes you have to do something you hate to create something you love.
There are 4 kinds of people in your life:
- Those who add
- Those who subtract
- Those who divide
- Those who multiply
- EVERY relationship will affect you for good or bad.
- You may need to change locations and situations to unlock the full potential of your success.
- The quality of preparation determines the quality of performance.
- Authority creates order.
- Mentorship is the master key to extraordinary success.
- People never by your product for the reasons you sell it. They buy the product for what it will do for them.
- Never build your future around your past.
- Criticism is the death gargle of a non-achiever.
- Critical people are disappointed people. Disillusioned people. Unfocused people. They are hurting on the inside. They build their life trying to destroy others.
- Bitterness is more devastating than betrayal.
- Those who wait usually win. Those who refuse to wait usually lose. Patience is powerful.
- What you hear repeatedly, you eventually will believe.
- Success is a collection of relationships.
- Your future is connected to people; develop people skills.
Set specific goals.
In 1952, a prominent university discovered that only 3 out of 100 graduates had written down a clear list of goals. 10 years later, their follow-up study showed that 3% of the graduating class had accomplished more financially than the remaining 97%. Those 3% were the same graduates who had written down their goals.
- Great men simply have great habits.
- It takes approximately 56 hours to read the Bible completely. If you read 40 chapters a day, you will complete it in 30 days. If you read 9 chapters a day, you can cover the New Testament in 30 days.
- Impatience is costly.
- Your greatest mistakes will happen because of impatience.
Thoughts on delegation:
- Do what you do best.
- What you love is a clue to your calling and talent.
- Strife will never go away voluntarily. You must confront it. You will never correct what you are unwilling to confront.
- People rarely respect anyone they are capable of intimidating, dominating, or manipulating.
- The secret of your future is determined in the seeds you sow today.
